School children in Clackmannanshire, Scotland, will visit local mosques in the wake of the Alva terror trial, BBC Scotland reported. It is hoped the scheme will increase understanding of other religions in the community. The move comes after former Alva Academy pupil Mohammed Atif Siddique, 21, was found guilty of terrorism offences on Monday. Ochil and South Perthshire MP Gordon Banks said ideas were being looked at on how schools could “better understand the role of the Muslim community and the Muslim religion” and “to try and show to the rest of the community that the Muslim community is here and has something positive to offer”.
